This class was so fun and everything we made was delicious. 3 recipes in 3 hours, and so many leftovers to take home! Expect to sample a lot!! Most of the basic ingredients were already prepared and portioned and the only complaint I have is that because we made so many items I can't remember all of the steps for each. But the recipes were provided for us to take home. Overall really great. Highly recommend!
This class was awesome! I really enjoyed learning more about knives (like which ones to purchase) and also hear more about how to cut. No idea you were supposed to turn your body sideways. I would really recommend this class - you also get to take home whatever we cut up so it makes for a good stir fry!
Loved *most* of the Dumplings Around the World class. Everything we cooked was delicious and we had tons of leftovers to take home afterwards. The chef running the class as well as the rest of the staff were excellent as well. However I have to give the class 2 stars because I did not get what I paid for. The curriculum was to learn 4 different dumplings - pierogi, samosa, potsticker, empanada. However upon arrival at class we were informed that one of the planned dumplings (pierogi) would no longer be taught in class that day due to management's decision to change the class direction without notice (samples were served when we arrived instead of teaching the recipe). I feel bad for the staff who got stuck with delivering the bad news as they were not responsible for the class change & appreciate that they did their best to make rest of class enjoyable. It would have been so simple for Chopping Block to say "hey, due to time constraints we need to reduce the menu from the planned curriculum. For the inconvenience, here's a discount off your next class or have a glass of wine on us." Instead I got 75% of the class I signed up for and didn't get to make the dumpling I was most excited about learning.
Great class! Great instructors! Great lessons!
I thought it was informative and fun! Food was good too!
The venue, staff and chef were great!!
100 Stars!!! Incredible!!
The chefs were amazing, extremely knowledgeable and helpful! It was super fun, hope to sign up for more.
This class was amazing. Chef Leia was so patient with us and took the time to answer all our questions. The recipes were great and the staff made us breakfast and lunch. Perfect afternoon for my sister and I to have some girl time.
So fun! Breakfast and lunch was reserved. The recipes were so interesting. The chefs and helpers were always nears by to give advice. So much fun!
